I am a qualified counsellor and coach working in private practice in Pembrokeshire. I see counselling clients with a wide range of presenting issues, and am also available to work as a coach with individuals and businesses at a range of venues in South West Wales.
At our first session, we would be exploring the issues you are wishing to bring to counselling, and establishing whether you are comfortable working with me, and how best we might begin to deal with things. I am friendly and approachable, and will be doing my best to put you at your ease. Most people are somewhat nervous when they first start counselling, but they quickly find that there is nothing to be worried about!
Counselling and coaching are very similar in many respects, although there are some difference: I would usually see counselling clients for a 50 minute session on a weekly basis, at a regular time, as this helps people fit into the pattern of counselling better. I sometimes see coaching clients for longer sessions, which may - at the client's request - be at longer intervals.
We will take some time during the first session to ensure that I understand your expectations, and can meet them in the best way possible.
